Yep, my sysadmin (me) does some strange things now and then;). No actually, HTTP is enabled. It looks like I should have been a bit more patient before bothering anyone on this list about my trivial non problem. It turns out that the reason the http fetches were timing out was because of a misconfiguration of the Makefile of the port I was trying to install. The Makefile had these listed as the master sites for the distfile: MASTER_SITES= http://caraldi.com/jbq/numlockx/ \ http://dforce.sh.cvut.cz/~seli/en/numlockx/ after a bit of snooping, the distfile is actually in: http://caraldi.com/jbq/ports/numlockx A manual fetch of this url completed successfully. %fetch http://caraldi.com/jbq/ports/numlockx/numlockx-1.0.tar.gz Receiving numlockx-1.0.tar.gz (34936 bytes): 100% 34936 bytes transferred in 3.2 seconds (10.62 kBps) Changing the Makefile in /usr/ports/x11/numlockx to reflect that valid url causes the port to install successfully. Thanks Horio and Sergey for your input. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
